16 Week Bumpdate and more …..

Not my best picture and my shirt is pretty wrinkly, but I wasn’t feeling so hot when Keith took this!
How far along: 16 weeks
Gender: Girl
Weight gain: 1 pound!!
Maternity clothes: yes yes yes … I finally broke down and bought some more really cute, comfy and most importantly, WARM! sweaters this week. It’s been so chilly here!!
Stretch marks: Nope!
Belly button in or out: In, and it’s oddly enough quite deep. Very strange.
Sleep: Sleep is still pretty good, I wake up occasionally at night to use the bathroom, but I’m getting some much needed rest :)
Best moment this week: My midwife scheduled our 18 week anatomy scan, and we are SO excited to see our sweet baby girl! We haven’t had an ultrasound since I was 6 weeks pregnant and she was just a beating cheerio :)
Worst moment this week: Being home alone for 5 days while Keith was on his boys golf trip. He had a blast and Gunner kept me comfortable and I stayed busy, but it’s so nice having him home again!
Miss anything: Being able to take medicine when I get a migraine, all the ones that are “safe” to take during pregnancy don’t work so it’s pretty miserable when one hits me.
Movement: Still nothing yet
Cravings: Panera mac’n’cheese, cap’n crunch cereal and steak and cheese subs. Oh, and clementines. I eat 4 or 5 at a time!
Queasy or sick:I really can’t do chicken … I had a bad chicken kabob wrap this week that made me violently ill, so I’ll be steering clear of chicken for a bit I think!
Looking forward to: Stuffing my face on Thanksgiving :) getting our holiday card photos taken next weekend!
And now just for fun …. my week with pictures!
I came home from work Tuesday to find a tiny little package in my mailbox! Baby M received her first pair of shoes from Keith’s aunt and uncle. Aren’t they darling!??!
I discovered the ribbon retreat and ordered enough supplies to make baby girl 9 headbands!
And I only spent $19, including shipping, for all the supplies and it was on my doorstep two days later!

Taken at 16 weeks, 5 days … my how I’ve grown!
What her closet currently looks like :) I’m hoping to order her dresser in January so that I can have more places to put things! haha! I might need a shopping intervention :) 
Oooh and I also forgot to mention that we booked our babymoon/my 30th birthday trip! We are going to Charleston, SC for 4 days in early January, and I couldn’t be more excited to get away with the hubs and celebrate the new year, a milestone birthday and enjoying one last trip before our little girl arrives :)

15 week bumpdate!


I am little late on this post, since this was technically last week, but better late than never! We’ve had a really busy few days, and I was pretty sick yesterday so I’m thankful to finally have some time for this post, even if it is a quick one!

How far along: (in this photo) 15 weeks

Gender: sweet baby girl!

Weight gain: still negative!

Maternity clothes: wearing more and more maternity tops, like this cute denim tunic from Kohl’s

Stretch marks: Nope

Belly button in or out: In, but it’s starting to stretch haha

Sleep: awesome sleep … I fall asleep instantly and sleep like a rock through the night. It’s wonderful!

Best moment this week: I’m going to be a little selfish and say the best thing about this week is how great I’m finally feeling. Very minor headaches, no nausea or vomiting, sleeping good and having tons of energy!

Worst moment this week: honestly nothing! so happy to finally be able to enjoy this pregnancy :)

Miss anything: still just the occasional glass of wine

Movement: nothing! not even little flutters … come on baby girl!

Cravings: cereal .. specifically Cap’n Crunch. I could eat it by the box!  

Queasy or sick: Nope, nothing at all!

Looking forward to: Next week flying by since Keith will be away on his annual boys golf trip … getting all our Christmas decorations purchased and organized :)

Belly button in or out: In
Sleep: For the most part, pretty good!! I get up/wake up once a night, but am able to quickly fall back asleep. A couple nights this week I woke up with a headache around 2am, but was about to take some tylenol and get back to bed.
Best moment this week: Finding out that little baby M is a girl!!! Choosing our daycare was a big relief too 
Worst moment this week: Keith was in Austin on business all week and I hate being alone at night :/ Suffered through a couple more bad headaches.
Miss anything: There was one day this week I REALLY wanted some wine lol

Queasy or sick: Feeling good now! So thankful the all-day sickness is gone!

Looking forward to: working on her nursery, deciding on a name (WHY is this so hard??) and our first holidays in our new home!!
